"It wasn't even 150 years ago when somebody just like you couldn't even go to the theatre without getting shot."

Two years ago, Ed Helms did his very first Daily Show Peice , and maybe its just me, but Ed looks different now than he did when he first started the show:



He looks a lot younger now. When he first started the show, it looked like the makeup lady put too much makeup on him or something.

Will He Wear The Yellow Jacket Again?

Stephen Colbert is going to be on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight. Sorry for the short notice.

I don't think I'm going to be watching it though, I think I might go to bed instead.


I made about four screen captures of it, and I'm putting them up when I get home tonight.

Former KSNW reporter now on Comedy Central

The Wichita Eagle | 04/25/2004 | Former KSNW reporter now on Comedy Central: "Former KSNW reporter now on Comedy Central

Bob Wiltfong, a former reporter at KSNW, Channel 3, is the newest correspondent on Comedy Central's 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.'
Wiltfong made his debut about two weeks ago on the Emmy Award-winning satirical news show, which airs at 10 p.m. Mon-day-Friday on cable Channel 58.
Preliminary reaction from national viewers on a Web site chat line is that he has an ultra-cool name. They also think he's pretty funny.
Wichita viewers might remember Wiltfong for his dust-up with school superintendent Winston Brooks, then district personnel director, over lack of background checks for school employees. The investigation uncovered a number with felony records and led to changes in how personnel are hired."

Stephen Colbert Reports : Martha Stewart Under The Linen

I can't believe nobody told me that the links to the March, 2004 screen captures were broken. Well, I fixed them.

Oh, I'm at school killing time, and I forgot I had made these non-TDS caps of Jon and put them on my Living Room w/out a TV site. I made these a long time ago.

As Shown On The USA Network

If there was ever a made for TV movie about Gray Davis, I think that former correspondent Vance DeGeneres could play the part of the ex-govenor. Sure, we'd have to find a way to get Vance's black hair to go gray temporary, but I think it could be done.

I know I didn't make up the Colin Powell GI Joe figure up. I remember seeing that on the clearance aisle at Toys R Us in the summer of 1993 and thinking how odd it was to see that at Toys R Us.

Evening of laughs showcases college groups, pro comedian Stephen Colbert of 'The Daily Show'

...hosts sixth annual festival

Stephen Colbert of 'The Daily Show' eats matzah with 'Mel Gibson,' played by College senior Wes Mullen.
[Ryan Jones/The Daily Pennsylvanian]

The sixth annual Intercollegiate Comedy Festival, presented by Mask and Wig and the Social Planning and Events Committee, took place last night in a packed Irvine Auditorium.
Stephen Colbert, best known from his work as a correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, was greeted by cheers as he walked onstage. He immediately engaged the audience by conducting an Irvine-wide hum, and once the audience followed his command, he silenced them, saying, "And you wonder how Hitler took power?"

The show hosted four comedy groups, including University of Maryland's Sketchup, Princeton's Triangle Club, Yale's Fifth Humour and Penn's Mask and Wig Club.

Colbert set out to address the question, "Is Mel Gibson anti-Semitic?" He interviewed Gibson, played by Penn Mask and Wig member and College senior Wes Mullen, posing questions such as, "If a Jew stole your cab and threw a latke at you, would you hate him?" The response, "Hate is a very strong word," did not seem to satisfy Colbert, who then proceeded to interview Jesus.

Colbert also decided to poll "audience members" about "Mel Gibson," asking a posing Mask and Wig member to compare his butt to Gibson's. He then proceeded to drink from the member's flask of "mystery liquid," saying, "I probably shouldn't, but what the hell, it's Spring Fling!"

My Favorite Stephen Colbert Story (reprinted)

Think you've seen this before? It's because you have. Since my old blog was shut down, I'm in the process of reprinting some of my favorite entries.

“Cereal Killer”
Airdate : November 27, 2000

Some say that children are addicted to … Boo Berry. In the 1970’s, the loveable cereal mascot (with nipple piercings!) helped make a generation of children hooked to the ‘boo.

Just as the kids were hooked, General Mills curtailed production, with no warning at all. Stephen talks to a woman who drove 26,000 miles for the stuff! But she’s not alone. Stephen was contacted by a young man named Roger Barr who is also addicted to boo, so Stephen goes lurking around a park to look for him via surveillance camera:

”(sits next to him) are you the guy?”
”Excuse me? What guy? I’m not the guy.”
”The guy with the cereal Are you the guy with the cereal?”
Ok, wrong guy. Eventually, Stephen found him, but he wasn’t interesting. Basically, you can only get Boo Berry in certain areas. With everyone clamoring over it, why isn’t it available?

Stephen contacts General Mills, using the fake name “Dan Rather”, and he asks if Hayley Mills is there, but she isn’t, so he talks to whoever is there.
”Why isn’t boo berry readily available to the American public?”
But we never got that answer because Stephen had gotten addicted too…

Which meant only one question remained : is it really that hard to find? Stephen goes into a store walking like a robot with a tiny camera tucked in a hat.
but he’s become so delusional on the ‘boo, he thinks that deviled ham and Cooking wine was cereal…

He gets his answer:
"Do you have BOO BERRY cereal?""No.""Thank You."

Stephen’s work was done. Jon?

    "A Tip That Your Crotch Smells"

    'Remember that old Just A Tip website that sent people anonymous e-mail tips about something that was wrong with them? And that time Lord Viper Scorpion (the computer hacker character from 2000-2001) sent a e-mail to Jon saying that his crotch smelled? Well, the site is long gone (here's an archived version though) which is too bad, because I wanted to create one that sent anonymous e-mails to bloggers that spell Jon's name wrong.

    One disgruntled avid Al-Hausa reader's reaction to its closing:

    "Before they shut the paper down, my wife used to like Arts and Leisure, while I went straight for the magazine. The only thing I loved more than doing the crossword puzzle was actually finishing it! AYIYIYIYIYIYIYIYIYIYIYIYIYI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    They used to run that New York Times ad all. the. time. when I first got Direct TV three years ago.

    Speaking of the New York Times, I was flipping through one of my old journals from my senior year of high school, and when I had nothing to do in yearbook class, I'd look through my yearbook teacher's cut up George Magazines, and I cut this out one time and stuck it in my journal:

    Troubled, Exasperated, and Overwhelmed By The Sheer Size Of The Sunday New York Times? Well, You're Not The Only One.

    When I was a single adult, which I no longer am, my idea of a perfect Sunday--a Sunday in paradist--was to wake up, go get the New York Times, have coffee, have sex, read a section, have sex, read another section, have more sex, and so on through the Week In Review, Arts & Leisue, the Book Review, section one, Metro Section, Sports, the Magazine, and if one was feelind adventurious (and amous enough) a quick look at Travel. Sunday really wasn't Sunday without the New York Times.

    Jon Stewart: Who's Your Daddy?

    by Lia Haberman
    Apr 1, 2004, 11:30 AM PT

    This just in: Jon Stewart is gonna be a daddy.

    The 41-year-old funnyman and his missus, Tracey, are expecting their first child. No other details are available.

    Stewart's publicist wasn't available for confirmation at press time but fellow thesp and Daily Show guest Jennifer Beals let the baby news out of the bag Monday night when she congratulated Stewart on air--unaware that this wasn't public knowledge.

    A stunned Stewart, who starred with Beals in 1997's romantic comedy Wishful Thinking, accepted her best wishes and a chorus of "awwws" from the audience.

    The Daily Show host and his wife, a graphic designer, have been hitched since 2000.

    The timing works out well for the late night yakker and papa-to-be, who's suddenly facing 2 a.m. feedings and college tuition.

    Two weeks ago, Stewart agreed to a four-year contract extension at Comedy Central that will keep him anchoring the mock newscast through 2008.

    "A lot of people like to get out when their show's still going well," Stewart said in a statement. "This gives me the opportunity to beat this thing into the ground."

    For his efforts, Stewart's expected to receive a raise in his current $1.5 million salary.

    He took over the anchor desk in January 1999 from original host Craig Kilborn.

    Before joining The Daily Show, Stewart emceed the syndicated Jon Stewart Show, which originally aired on MTV, and was a fill-in host for The Late Late Show with Tom Snyder.

    He hosted the 2002 Grammy Awards and has also tried his hand at acting. Aside from a recurring role as Garry Shandling's scheming successor on HBO's The Larry Sanders Show, Stewart has appeared in such feature flicks as The First Wives Club, Playing by Heart, Death to Smoochy, Big Daddy and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.
